sort of two parallel americas right now politically speaking. there's the america that re-elected obama by five million votes that's growing, that's diversifying. it's the coalition of the descendent. then there's the america that just gave us the majority of house republicans, and that america -- those districts are not diversifying like the rest of the country, so that kind of language, the language that frank luntz is warning against actually still sells very well and insulates the republican members in those districts from the threat of a primary challenge, and i think that the long-term problem for republicans is this. if you think of the democrats -- if you think of the republicans and the black vote circa the mid 1960s, we forget the republican party was the home of the black vote for almost a century after the civil war, and what happened was they turned -- they embraced the southern back lack to civil rights, and then it's been 80% plus. the republicans or the latino vote are not yet at that point. it was just eight years ago that george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote, but
